  2. 2. Disgraceful Scenario of Inhumanity… www.ijhssi.org 55 | P a g e III. CONCLUSION Now a day, some of our society covering with inhumanity, injustice, discrimination and corruption. Our society is highly civilized. But till day, some man created rules are remaining in our society which totally dreadful to the human being. If we see to the discrimination of society, a dreadful scenario comes to our mind like the picture of „Ghunusa‟. In this world there are many peoples who are suffering their life by the discrimination of their own society. Every man has a right to live in this world. But some time, somebody compelled them to live alone throwing them from society, make them a criminal, compelled them to become a prostitute, by using their self created law and power. In this high civilized society many people are deprived from their legal property because they are not a rich, no powerful position in their society and nobody is there to help them. Like the story of „Ghunusa‟, there are many cases that die without a little treatment, nobody have a little sympathy to them. In the high civilized society they die due to lack of money. We have to change our mind and our self created law which have the bad impact on society and culture. It will change our social system removing the evils of society. References.
